A new survey from Cisco Systems Inc. has found that over half of companies have plans to cut down on office space to accommodate employees working from home after the pandemic is over.
Additionally, nearly all respondents of the survey stated they were uncomfortable with returning to work for fear they could contract the virus.
Over 90% of respondents revealed they would not return to the office full-time, with 12% planning to work from home all of the time, 24% working remotely more than 15 days each month and 22% working remotely eight to 15 days each month.
Cisco’s Webex video conferencing services have seen a huge boost in usage as millions of people continue to work from home.
To accommodate workers who do return to the office, Webex will be adding environmental sensors that plug into its video-conferencing gear to make it easier for companies to identify whether a space is being under or over-used.
